    Welcome Saltiena,
    You are in the right place. I have learned so much since I found this site.

    I would start by hiting the home page and going to the learning center. Read everything there. It covers basic care, coops, diseases, and preditors pretty well. Then ask any questions you didn't get from there.

    Oh, and post pics of your coop setup inCoop Design and Construction and ask for opinions/advice.

    What kind of chickies are you getting?

    BTW I am sooooo jelouse. I want to move to the country and buy an old farm house. [​IMG]: P
